Burton or Volcom jackets?

Don't know much about gear but I need a new jacket. Thinking about the Burton Credence (Women's Burton Credence Jacket | Burton Snowboards) or the Volcom Cassina jacket (Volcom | Cassina Jacket).

Are Burton jackets generally better than Volcom?
It's not a matter of insulation, I don't go up that often.

the burton one has better waterproofing vs the volcom one. so my vote is for burton.

edit: for style-wise i like the volcom 10x better. 10K waterproofing vs 8K waterproofing but more fashionable. hard decision.

^ I agree with him. Volcom better style + beater venting - Water proof rating. Or Burton + Better Waterproofing. Really this is your call.

i think the burton has better breathability. I thought the couch design was the only color but there are different colors so i guess it's not as bad. it's function vs fashion. who will prevail?

Burton 10,000 5,000?
Volcom 8,000 8,000?

I'd say Nomis. If anything, hella better looking selection than either of these and quite feature/pocket packed.

Out of those two, I'd go for the Burton. I've always had Burton jackets, they're very durable, they usually look nice and they generally have a lot of features, always liked em!

This year however, I went for an O'neil jacket... Never really bothered to look into O'neil, but this jacket really surprised me, very warm, very comfy, lot of features, highly waterproof, not too thick... I really love it, I think this is one of the best snow jackets I've ever had. It was from the FIFTY2 series, so maybe try and look at those if you want something different

My experience with Burton outerwear is that it is cheaply made and does not hold up well. I had a pair of pants from a few years back that just wasn't worth the money. Right now im riding Volcom pants and jacket and couldn't be more happy. I also doubt you'd even be able to tell the difference between 10k and 8k waterproofing. All personal preference but id rather support Volcom.
